Pre-sale ticket sales for Taylor Swift’s films set a record



Indianapolis, Indiana – When pop diva Taylor Swift is involved, there doesn’t seem to be any such thing as “red” on the financial books.

Pre-sales for the concert film, which the singer-songwriter will release in the fall, have already shattered records.

Swift’s “The Eras Tour” has experienced unprecedented demand, according to AMC Theatres, which reported a rush to preorder tickets.

According to AMC, the movie made a record amount of money on Thursday from a single day of advance ticket sales, six weeks before it even opened.

According to a statement from the cinema network, sales of $26 million broke the previous record-breaking day of advance purchases for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in 2021, which brought in $16.9 million.

The record was broken in less time than three hours, matching the movie’s two-hour, 45 minute running time. Websites for numerous AMC locations showed nearly filled theaters for opening weekend hours after the purchase window had opened. The business has added more showtimes when it is feasible in response to the interest.

“Recognizing this unprecedented demand, AMC is adding additional showtimes to increase capacity where necessary and available. During its run at AMC, “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour” concert film will play at least four showtimes per day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, at every AMC theatre location in the United States,” was stated in the release.

Swift’s concert movie will follow the tour that has dominated media coverage in the entertainment industry and even regulatory discussions as a result of the failure of customers trying to get tickets through Ticketmaster.
AMC now has a fresh chance as a result of the ongoing Hollywood actor and writer strikes. Studios generally distribute films to cinemas, but due to the current situation, AMC has taken on that duty for Swift’s movie.

“This marks the inaugural step of a new line of business for AMC Entertainment,” the release said. “AMC is also acting as the theatrical distributor, securing locations and screens with numerous other movie theatre operators throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.”

On October 13, the concert movie will be released in theaters.
